mint tea

This wonderfully refreshing and rather sweet beverage is often served as a part of Middle Eastern and North African meals, but it is great on it's own as it is not only tasty but it settles digestion and even cures tummy aches.



1 teabag of pure green tea
a handful of fresh mint leaves
2-3 tbsp light brown muscovado sugar
1 medium teapot and boiling water


Slice the mint leaves julienne style. Boil the water and pour over a green tea bag into a kettle. Let it infuse for about 1 minute, until the tea has beautiful vibrant yellow colour but is not too strong. Remove the tea bag.
Add the sugar and mix until it dissolves.
Add the mint leaves, cover the teapot and let infuse for 10 minutes.

Leave the mint inside the pot, and pour in small shot glasses before and throughout the meal.
